    Ron Rose is an American poker player from Las Vegas, Nevada.

    Prior to getting involved in the poker tournament circuit, Rose was a mathematician and project engineer in the Air Force. Later he became an entrepreneur who started and sold two computer companies and an internet company. He also held a seat on the American Stock Exchange and owned his own commodities firm.

    Rose (who has been playing poker since the age of 6,) first finished in the money of a World Series of Poker (WSOP) event in 2001 in the $1,500 pot limit omaha event. He went on to win a WSOP bracelet in the 2003 seniors' no limit hold'em event, defeating a field of 377 opponents to take home the $130,060 first prize.

    In the first season of the World Poker Tour (WPT) Rose finishes 6th at the World Poker Finals, and went on to win the World Poker Challenge event, defeating a final table including Paul "X-22" Magriel and T. J. Cloutier. He would also win the inaugural WPT Battle of Champions event.

    Rose has also made the final table of the first ever Professional Poker Tour event, finishing in 3rd place.

    In 2004, Rose's book Poker Aces: The Stars of Tournament Poker (ISBN 0974972401) was released.
